FYI – Fortune Cookie Soap is ending their quarterly subscription box. The last box will be the winter box. But no worries, they still have their monthly subscription box: FCS of the Month Club.

You may have heard by now that the upcoming Winter soap box will be our last quarterly soap box. We started the Soap Box a little more than 5 years ago and have had a blast with it, but now that we have a monthly box as well, the time has come for us to focus on just one box and do it better than ever!! Plus, this will give us more time to do other fun things!

Why are we getting rid of the quarterly box?

In an effort to focus all our energy on providing the best possible box, we are merging the quarterly box concept into the FCS of the Month Box. For example, we’ll still have a seasonal box four times a year (spring, summer, fall, winter) but it will be part of the FCS of The Month Box.

Are there still going to be Launch parties?

Good question! We haven’t quite figured what that looks like yet. We’ll more than likely do a combination of the VIP party and a launch party.

What’s going to happen to the big seasonal collections? (spring, summer, winter, fall) Those will continue, but the products will be tied to the Monthly Box products as opposed to the Quarterly boxes.

Can I still sign up for the last quarterly box?

Yes, the last day to sign up is Oct. 31st.

What if I only want the seasonal boxes?

Good news! This box is totally customizable. Unlike our other system, you have complete control over your account, and which boxes you want. Once you sign up, you have the ability to pre-select which boxes you want for the entire year. (For example, if you’re not a fan of pumpkins, you can skip the fall box, whereas you didn’t have that option before with the quarterly box)

Do I need to cancel my quarterly subscription?

No, we’ll take care of it on our end.

What does $28 (+shipping) get you?

$60 worth of products. Each box will be a variety of full and deluxe sample size products. We have a lot more creative freedom with this box and are looking forward to doing lots of fun things with it this next year!

Does this box come with a discount code?

It does not come with a discount code in it, however, with The Monthly Box, you will receive loyalty points that can be redeemed for discount codes.

If I don’t want a box, do I have to cancel?

Nope, you simply have to skip it when you log into your account.

If you want to give the FCS of The Month box a try, make sure to use discount code FIRSTFCSBOX, and your first box will ship free. (in the US)

Finally, we want to say a big THANK YOU for all of you who have supported us for so many years! We LOVE you!!! <3

  1. To be really honest, I’m glad that the discount code is going away. I kinda hope it means some of their products will get a little cheaper. I feel like a lot of them are getting a little expensive for what they are.

  2. I recently canceled my quarterly sub not because I didn’t enjoy it but I was overloaded with sub box items. This was one of my favs and I liked the quarterly aspect of it. I’ll probably join again but hope there’s a skip option so that I don’t become overloaded again.

    • yes, it’s easy to skip months

  3. This is like the clearest explanation ever from a sub of why they’re no longer doing A and what to expect when they start doing B. Way to go, box – yay, transparency!

    I had been scoping out looking to sub to FCS after I saw it mentioned in that recent reader survey on underrated boxes (same thing for Goodbeing – saw it mentioned multiple times as underrated and it got me really curious to try it).

  4. I used to get the monthly box and really looked forward to those cute items. Unless they changed there was always a fortune cookie shaped soap, hand sanitizer and little jar of moisture body cream in every box. The other items were random but all pertained to that month’s theme. I stopped getting it because i was on overload at that time but definitely a fun box. Not sure if the value was there for me but still fun.

    • I believe you are referring to the quarterly Seasonal box, the one that is ending. I’m sad to see it end. I really enjoyed it. The (mostly movie) themes were really fun. The fortune cookie soaps appearance was always so cute how it pertained to the theme. They’ll still have they’re stock fcs soaps but I’ll miss the box themed ones. The monthly box which began around Jan of this year, has a specific theme for each month such as face, body, household, shower, hair, natural, etc. Also, they are now including their Halloween, 12 Days of Christmas and Easter boxes as monthly boxes instead of the larger more costly one off boxes of the past.

  5. I love this box, but the value in the monthly box is unbeatable.

  6. At first, I was disappointed this was ending. I had signed up for the quarterly boxes this past spring. I have loved both boxes I received. So much so, that I decided to get the monthly sub too before this news hit. I am excited to see how they blend the two subs together. I expect it to be awesome, because this company is really great.

  7. I’m bummed because I really like this sub. And I find that quarterly is the perfect timing for me for bath products. I’d love to see some reviews for the monthly box so I can decide whether to sub or not.

  8. Oh no!! I wanted to try this box I was just trying to use up my stash first. Sad it’s ending.

    • Doesn’t sound like it’s ending….they’re just switching to monthly only.
